How do I help a student being controlled by his parents? He has a lot of potential but his parents give him projects over schoolwork and discourage him. What role can I play in helping the student?

    Have you consulted with student affairs, or whoever handles that sort of thing for your university? That would be my first thought to try. – Jeff Mar 15 '20 at 20:24

    You need to say more. What is your relationship to the student? To the family? What sort of "projects"? – Buffy Mar 15 '20 at 20:41

Don't get between the student and the parents. That's a complicated and stormy dynamic and [you] can't do anything but harm there.

You may not like it, but it's really not something to get involved in.
